WOW it has been soooooo long, but....

you know how it is - life happens.
So much life has happened really - boys moving out, changed jobs, hospital visits for both myself and Doofus...I could go on, and on, but I wont'

I did get sidetracked, a lot, with hockey over the last season with the photos that it didn't leave much time for anything else in the weekend - and it cut into my scrapping time.

This year, I made a resolution (I do every year, but you know how THAT goes....) and I am going to be POSITIVE.

POSITIVE to try new things
POSITIVE  in my attitude
POSITIVE overall....and that includes finding time to make some cards and scrap.

So, I made a card, in fact, I have made several.....but the first one I am showing you is a Halloween card....I know, Halloween, in January...go figure.

But I purchased the background stamp and then ordered it again, in error. So I have 2! I thought I would sell the other one on Trade Me...but thought it might look more appealing if I had a card showing how it really looks.

This card is a copy of a card I saw on a blog....for the life of me, I cannot remember whose (new computer, lost all my bookmarks) so I cannot credit the talented card maker..

I used some Zing! opaque white embossing powder for the background swirls, and also on the vellum.
I stamped the ghost on some textured white card stock and cut around him - and popped him up on some foam dots

I like it, but I did miss some embossing (have not done lots of heat embossing, so that is my excuse for the blotchy marks, lol) 
I used up the last of my Stampin Up black card stock, not sure how I feel about that - yay or not.....

I used stamps from Paper Smooches stamps - Happy Halloweenies. I love PS stamps, and recently found a place, online, in NZ who has some of the

So anyways, I am off to list the 2nd stamp on trademe...hopefully someone likes this stamp as much as me...
